BASF has been contributing to Turkish economy since the foundation of the Republic. BASF got into a partnership with Sumerbank in 1969 with the aim of providing products to primary industrial sectors such as textile, paper, paint and leather. In 1970, BASF operations in BASF’s first factory in Gebze started. The factory manufactured leather, detergent and construction chemicals. Thanks to the active operations of this factory, BASF began to produce its products, which comply with world standards, in Türkiye, and helped many industries to improve and contributed to Turkish economy. BASF’s partnership with Sumerbank continued until 2000, when BASF AG acquired all the shares from Sumerbank Holding.
